How to Make It
Preheat oven to 325°.
Coat 2 (7-inch) springform pans with cooking spray; sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly over the bottoms of pans.
Place ricotta and cream cheese in large bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until smooth. Add Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and egg; beat until well-blended.
Pour 3/4 cup cheese mixture into each prepared pan. Spread 1/2 cup Roasted Pepper Pesto over each layer; top each pesto layer with 3/4 cup cheese mixture. Bake at 325° for 45 minutes or until almost set.
Combine 1/4 cup Roasted Pepper Pesto, flour, and sour cream in a bowl; stir well. Spread half of mixture over each cheesecake. Bake at 325° for 10 minutes. Remove cheesecakes from oven; let cool to room temperature. Cover and chill. Cut each cheesecake into 12 wedges; serve with baguette slices. Garnish with bell pepper strips, if desired.
